Adopt a Whale
Adopt a whale for the whale-lover in your life.
Contribute to valuable scientific research about free-swimming whales- and join the efforts to protect whales around the world.
For a $40.00 tax-deductible donation, you receive an adoption certificate with a color photograph of the whale you choose and information about your whale.
For a $400 tax-deductible donation you can name and adopt a humpback whale.
For a $500 tax-deductible donation you can name and adopt a blue whale.
The Oceanic Society initiated the Adopt-A-Whale program in 1988 as a means for public involvement and field support for the research effort. Your support will purchase and maintain much needed field equipment to keep the project going, and help inform others about whale issues. Here are the names of some whales often seen during our research season.
